Food habits can benefit or deteriorate the body.  Identifying excess or deficient areas of eating can make all the difference to how you feel. Consumption of certain types of foods for certain periods of time can aid in returning the body to a more vital state.  

Developed by Dr. John Lyftogt, a New Zealand M.D. NPT is a series of subcutaneous (under the skin) injections of Dextrose (5%) around inflamed nerves that cause pain.  Dr. Lyftogt hypothesized that the D5W solution stops pain by blocking the TRPV1 receptor.   This therapy is beneficial for both acute and chronic pain. Simple Saline is now used in place of dextrose with similar outcomes.

 
 

IV therapy is very useful in medicine as it is able to directly deliver substances to the needed tissues through the blood stream.  The ability to bypass the digestive track ensures that 100% of the remedy is absorbed. Intravenous therapy is useful for conditions such as fatigue, mal-absorption, and cancer. 

 

Naturally occurring substances within our body are used at varying doses and durations to treat diseased states and preserve optimal health. These include amino acids, fatty acids (omega-3's), vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes.  One common treatment involves the use of insulin, a natural occurring hormone found in the body, given to regulate type 1 diabetes.

 
 

Qi (Chi) is the vital energy of the body. Its disruption can cause disorders in the body ranging from pain, to digestive disorders, and infertility. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are used to bring the Qi back into balance and within normal function.  Maintaining good Qi is a way of life. The flow of Qi influence is in every aspect of life. Emotions and types of foods can help replenish or drain Qi in the body. 

Blood, urine, and salivary samples are key components to an accurate diagnosis.  Laboratory testing is also a means to the correct course of action and monitor progression.  All tests ordered are processed by larger laboratories and can be expanded to suit individual circumstances.  The government does not cover cost of lab tests ordered by N.D.’s
 

 
 

The body is not simply a machine that works independently on its own, rather it is influenced by our thoughts and emotions. Different emotional states can cause physical changes in the body such as stress, creating ulcers. However it can have the polar effect; poor nutrition can cause negative changes to an individuals mental state.  Therefore, It is important to treat all aspects of an individual to lessen the burden of disease.

 

Pain is a good indicator that something is wrong in the body.  It’s essential to separate pain from internal (organ related) or external (muscular-skeletal).  By addressing spinal mis-alignments, muscular limitations, nerve restrictions, and fascial adhesions, pain can be alleviated. Rehabilitation exercises can be then be used for prevention and maintenance.
